Microsoft offers an easy method for downloading and installing Windows apps from the Microsoft Store. All you are required to do is simply visit the app’s page, hit ‘Get the app’ button and wait for few seconds. Although fine, this doesn’t always work as intended. For example, the Microsoft Store page sometimes refuses to load. At such times, an alternative method should be considered. A new online tool helps you download applications from the Microsoft Store in an alternative way.
Adguard lets you download Windows 10 apps without visiting Microsoft Store. It’s an online link generator that lets users enter the direct download link from the Microsoft Store to get all available alternate links to download UWP apps.
Download Windows 10 apps without visiting Microsoft Store
The new Adguard Store interface changes this as it provides anyone with options to download any store application. All you need is the app link in the Store. When provided, the tool instantly displays the list of all available downloads for the desired app.
You can select any file to save a copy. Alongside the file description, you will find information related to expiry date, SHA-1 hashes and file size in the interface. Please note that you have to download the AppxBundle (application) and EAppxBundle (updater) files.
Generate Direct Download Links for Microsoft Store apps
After downloading the two files to the local system, a user is prompted to enable the Developer Mode on his Windows 10 to install the applications, hassle-free.
To do this, open Windows Settings, go to Update & Security and scroll down to locate ‘For Developers’ section.
Next, check the circle marked against Developer Mode option. If a warning message is displayed, ignore it and accept the prompt by selecting Yes.
After that, wait for the Developer Mode packages to be installed. When done, double-click on the AppxBundle file afterward to install the application on the Windows 10 device. The EAppxBundle file is used to update the application. The app installs itself on the device, successfully.
Kindly bear in mind, you cannot use the online tool to download paid applications or games. Adguard is configured to block listings for paid applications and games and returns an empty list instead of download links.
